New York (April 1, 2005)–Mackie recently previewed the new LP48 Lake Processor expansion card for the TT24 Digital Live Console at the NSCA Expo. The company collaborated with Lake Technology Limited to develop the LP48 Lake Processor card, which aims to enhance the TT24’s functionality by adding Lake Technology’s EQ and Loudspeaker Processor tools to its DSP capabilities.
The LP48 expansion card can be configured in Lake Loudspeaker Processor mode as a 4 input by 8-output loudspeaker processor to provide eight channels of balanced analog output with line drive capability. Second, it can provide the user with up to 12 channels of Lake-designed insert EQ processing including the Lake Ideal Graphic EQ and Lake Mesa EQwith asymmetrical filters. Finally, users can configure the card with 6 channels of insertable EQ processing and a 2 input by 4-output Lake Loudspeaker Processor.
With the LP48 card installed, the TT24’s onboard 5-inch LCD touch screen provides control of the Lake algorithms. In addition, the TT24’s control interface for PC integrates a Lake-style GUI for access and configuration.
“Lake Technology is, without question, an industry leader in the development of exceptional DSP algorithms for audio processing,” said John Boudreau, product manager for the Mackie TT24. “Incorporating their technology into the TT24 not only legitimizes its place among much more expensive consoles, but also affirms Mackie’s commitment to providing high-level performance at an affordable price.”
